Sketchbook Walks

Beach Sketchbook Walk

On Saturday 19th September 2020 we are having a sketchbook walk this is a follow-on from our amazing Mindful Photography workshop that happened last week! 

We would like you to join our Gwendraeth Arts Lab Artists on the Burry Port Beach for a sketchbook walk to express your feelings about the Carmarthen Bay Power Generation Plant, which was demolished in 1990. Observing the demolition landscape and considering the extensive natural erosion of the beach and the man-made and natural cliffs, which has exposed fragments of machinery and the original structures.

One thought on “Beach Sketchbook Walk

  1. Sounds interesting and beautiful. I wish I could be there. Not sure what to do instead. Maybe see if I can turn one of the photos from last week into a painting.

    Now safely back and finding it very cold, but still some lovely weather and short walks. It’s the 150 years anniversary of Wandsworth common coming up and so expect to hear more about people keeping sheep there, the fight to prevent it being developed by builders and kept for the people to use and enjoy. But few traces of that, though could draw wartime traces- where the shelters were, etc.

    Sorry to reboot on. Have a good walk and keep drawing, all of you. All best
